London, 1818
 Anne Middleton never plays by the rules. She is willful when she should be obedient and unabashed when she should be decorous. Worse still, she can never resist a good wager... or a very naughty book. And Confessions of a Courtesan is about as sensational and risque as a book can be. Michael Grey - Earl of Thornhill - had once courted Anne's sweet and modest sister. But whilst Anne is certainly no lady of decorum, her bold impulsiveness slips through his armor, and propriety is forgotten. Now he too is immersed in the book of forbidden delights, where each page is an invitation to sin and a guide to pleasures unknown... Roused by heady desire, Michael tempts Anne in a way she cannot resist - a wager. Thus begins a game of chance, where coins have been replaced by a currency that is far more illicit. And the stakes of seduction are dangerous indeed... A Scandalous Novella

My Thoughts
Outspoken, fiery, and still ever the lady.  Young Anne Middleton is used to being bested by her much sought after sister Elizabeth; when it comes to the game of love.  Little does she know however, that one harmless wager, and the chance meeting that results, will lead her to a game of passion where the stakes are no less than "winner takes all."

"The Wager" takes a decidedly flirty approach to the Regency Romance.
Thrown together by their shared interest in a certain erotic tome; Michael Grey, Earl of Thornhill, and Lady Anne, find themselves swept away by a most unexpected passion.

The heat level of this tale is a slow simmer; with the author choosing to rely on character chemistry and excellent player repartee, in lieu of the convenience of torrid sex scenes. Readers are allowed to enjoy the process of their leading man and his lady "falling in like".
Yes, these two actually become friends first.
A wonderful case of the big story in the delightfully readable package.
Michael and Anne are sure to make you smile, warm your heart, and maybe even convince you to take a gamble on love.
